This is a lovely, unfussy, good place to stay. It is not the Hilton Hotel, no night service, no fuss, no pretensions - it is an older building, with thick walls, so not triple glazed nor as warm as a modern town house - so dress warmly for the season and bring a spare jumper in case you get cold in the evening! We were dressed for the outdoors, with wooly jumpers, so Everything was up to scratch: comfy beds, with spare bedding in case we were cold, a hearty breakfast to set us up for the day (we were out exploring/sight seeing and walking the hills by day), and everything clean. Better than many a complacent city guesthouse in my opinion.
A bonus was seeing red squirrels outside the breakfast room - not guaranteed, we were told, due to the stage of plantation growth, but a joy and privelege to see. We found plenty of sites to visit, which sadly includes the local cemetery where the Lockerbie plane crash dead are buried, but also including craft places to make things (good for children, but you may have to book so google and get in touch with them before you visit) . There are lots of walking routes, as with all of Scotland, and on journey back to England we dropped in at Gretna Green - this was very touristy as expected! Lockerbie is a longish walk - a taxi makes things easier, or take the car if someone is not drinking.
